4/10 Daiquiri Rum (1 oz El Dorado 3 Year)
4/10 Pineapple Juice (1 oz)
1/10 Caloric Punch (1/4 oz Homemade Swedish Punsch)
1/10 Crème de Bananes (1/4 oz Giffard Banane du Brésil)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
On Monday after I returned home from Drink and Andrea from her dinner at Bergamot, it was time for a nightcap. One of our recent purchases was Giffard Crème de Bananes, and I located the Metropine in the Café Royal Cocktail Book which utilized this liqueur. The drink's nose was full of pineapple and banana aromas. A very simple sip was followed by a lot of complexity on the swallow from fruit, rum, and spice especially from the Swedish Punsch. For a tropical drink, the Metropine was pretty stylish, and for 1934 England, very stylish.
